There were 16 members present at the meeting on the 18th of February. The current paid membership count is now 22 members.
The field that we are located in has been divided up between the Jamestown tribe and the creamery, so we will be loosing our field soon, possibly this summer.
See the minutes in the Members Only section for more details on the meeting.
A recent experience with a lipo battery has resulted in fire resistant charging bags being available at the charging stations. Please use them when you charge lipo batteries.
If you haven't heard, a 6 cell battery on a charger began popping and hissing (not normal) and was fortunately removed immediately to outside, where it was placed on the ground and within seconds erupted into a very impressive flame of 4 feet or so. Obviously that would not have been good on the wooden counter with the wooden cabinets above.
Air Affaire Fund Raiser
We still a volunteer to take charge of collecting donations from local businesses as well as being available to attend meetings with the Air Affaire group during the planning stages. Of course more than one volunteer would be better, so don't hold back because you think someone else is doing the job.
The final tally for the 2019 Air Affaire fund raiser was slightly above $3100. This years event will be Saturday only (along with the Air Affaire going to one day), so more donations will be very helpful in getting our contribution to VHoCC higher.
